      After your here for a while, you will form your group of “friends and family” I sell quite a bit on FABO. I always give the buyer the option on what they feel comfortable with, with the fees or without. Several members on here I will pay as f&f and there are several that pay me in the same way. I very rarely have gotten burnt.

        the guy that ripped me had the nerve to come on this site and try to sell what i had payed for. it was the nail in his coffin thank goodness. big mistake. i didnt call him out in public though. but they deserve it IMO. there are many scum suckers in the world for sure.

          Why would you not call him out? Why would you not warn others about him? That is a part of being friends and family too.

              its more about my protection. it was for many, many 1k's

              believe me i would love to call them out. but it was settled legally so i am content. i cant prevent what they do in the future and or on a daily basis. so i just call it a win. GOD was on my side. i couldnt spend a dime on my car for a long time until it was resolved.

              So now that you have your money back you feel no obligation to report his behavior to anyone else? Man I hope I’m never that scared. I’m done with this.

                i have been reduced to a bs uncontrolable diabetic life now and i am not like i used to be at all. it took out my pops and now its after me with a vengeance. its cost me my job and livelyhood. i havent been able to work for two years. i was at my last job over 10 years. couldnt get unemployment because you have to be able to work. lookd like disability is never gonna happen because i aint taking no DNA altering Vax mark of the beast to get it. i just want to cruise a mopar one more time before it takes me out. i dont know how many cans of whoopass i have left in life. if i do have any i really dont want to use them.

                Look I had a massive heart attack on 7/30/20 while I was driving with my grandson in my truck. I am diabetic also for 15 years now. That still would not stop me from calling a crook out.

                    My 7 year old grandson was Not hurt which is the main outcome. I had 4 stints put in including one in the “widow maker” artery, two ballon plasty procedures. Totaled my almost new truck. But I can still stand up for right and wrong and will till I’m dead. For good

                        I hope the boy gets his hard earned money back. I friggin HATE Facebook! Chock full of cheaters, scammers and stalkers. I've watched it ruin several friends lives, and have been thankful that I figured out what it would become before I was ever tempted to "join"! :realcrazy: :(

                              el5dart. Call him out!!! U will be protecting many others that will be surely thankful. He/she will have their day in our family court. There is 2 sides to every story. It doesn’t matter to us how popular they are. If they truly scammed u they deserve to be outed. If u truly believe in God u will do the right thing and out this person.

                                1 - this is the only place i will buy used, mail order parts, private party from
                                2 - i don't just look at the sellers rating. if it's someone i don't recognize, i look at a few months worth of their posts. if all they've got is 10 for sale threads of if they have some crazy arguments happening, (selling related or not), i'll pass
                                3 - tell me to send F&F and i'll still add the fees. partially to try and cover my end of the deal if something doesn't work out.
                                mostly i'm lucky. not trying to find the last thingamabob i need to finish a restore, and i live in an area that has a lot of people with crap to sell, and that are in driving distance.
                                hope the law or karma takes care of the OP's problem

                                  That’s like letting a rapist go and saying it is not your fault if he rapes or does worse to someone else. I disagree with you... you are responsible if you do nothing.
                                  PM me when you get the chance about who to avoid.

                                    Nope, he scammed him. I told my son even if he doesnt get his money back at least by filing police report if others come forward and were scammed by this asshat they may be forced to do something if multiple cases. This guy needs more that just charges brought against him.

                                      I once bought some cylinder heads and related stuff for a great price from a "dealer"on the internet. I didn't, and dont, have a paypal account, so my boss used his, but NOT the friends and family bullshit the seller suggested.
                                      When nothing showed up for two months, and calls went unanswered/unreturned, I got my money back thru paypal.
                                      I learned my lesson. I Will never, ever, EVER buy anything over the internet EVER!!!
                                      And it's not just this cylinder head asshole that taught me that lesson . Before I got smart, I found a couple things I wanted on amazon that were cheap enough to make me try to buy them. Since I don't trust them with credit card info, I bought gift cards. Fucking amazon wouldn't honor any of them. I'm done with all of them. Sorry for the rant, but I'm still pissed off!
